Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
the check in was very unfriendly. I had to wait until exactly 3 pm to check in and then there was a rush of all the people waiting. Also, there is no room service despite the fact that it says there is room service on the website. My room had no window and felt very claustrophobic

Liked: Cleanliness
Pretty central and walkable to Ximenting - with options of food and shopping. Like the decor and the vibe in the common areas - the theme of seamenship is pretty cool. But functionally in the room, definitely room for improvement. The bathroom and shower area are too small (well, the rain shower is shorter than me... I need to duck to get under it). TV is good with many channels and big. Check in and check out... I don't mind the self-service. Let us know we need the booking # in advance. Many of us just hand over our passport and get checked in when there is a front desk. Last, the Expedia VIP program late checkout was well appreciated!!
